The New Day have been one of WWE’s most popular factions for years now, and fans know that the members of The New Day love to have fun.
But originally the trio had different plans for the group, and Kofi Kingston recently told the Argus Leader that the original idea was for them to be a trio of wrestlers who were disgruntled with their positions in WWE.
“Initially Woods and E were talking about getting together and doing some sort of a faction. At that point in my career I was looking for a change, and it seemed like the perfect change. It was going to be three guys who were disgruntled with their positions in the company and wanted better, and that was the truth. Obviously, when we debuted, it ended up being a lot different from that. But we embraced what we were given, and we are what we are now. The evolution process has been amazing. The gimmick was going to be put on us and we knew that regardless of what we were out there talking about, our chemistry would shine through. And here we are today still doing it.”
Kingston was also asked about The New Day possibly breaking up, and he made it clear that he just doesn’t think that idea makes sense.
“I think stereotypically, when you have groups or tag teams, it’s a matter of time before they’re broken up. But with us, it’s a lot different because I think that we have something that nobody else has or nobody has had for a long time. We’re a three-man group who essentially cover all the bases.”
“All of us are entertaining, all of us can wrestle very well and all of us can speak very well. To me, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for them to break us up. We’re at the highest now than we’ve ever been. We’re doing a lot better now as a group than we were as singles. A lot of times when teams break up, it’s to do better as singles competitors than they’re doing as a group. It’s kind of hard to justify that with the things we’re doing right now with our merchandise sales and all the products we’re coming out with, the fanbase that we have, people clambering for pancakes and Booty-O’s and ice cream. We have a unique way of connecting with the crowd, so it doesn’t really make sense to split us up at all, even if we wanted to.”
